Negative Reviews

Bathrooms could use refurbishing.

A number of reviewers stated that the bathrooms are tired, cramped, and in need of renovation. People said that the bathrooms looked a bit shabby, had worn or broken fixtures, and that the tile grout was dirty.

Daily breakfast is hit-and-miss.

The complimentary daily breakfast served in the hotel bar area did not quite compare to the quality of fare served in the restaurant. Guests felt that the morning fare was very hit-or-miss, with many stating that their Irish breakfast was very greasy or not cooked properly.

Some comfort issues in the rooms.

Visitors noticed some comfort issues in their suites, such as rooms being too warm and poorly-ventilated. Others reported noise from the restaurant extractor fan and loud doors, adding that the rooms are not well-insulated against sound.
